Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration


10/15/2018 (Permalink)

When faced with a home disaster like flooding or mold it can be overwhelming figuring out what the next step should be or who to contact. SERVPRO is just one of many companies that deal with cleanup and restoration, so why pick us over our competitors? Well, because we have the resources, we have the professionalism, and we care.  

Just a few weeks ago, we rode out to the area in and around Madison, Wisconsin to clean-up and restore places that suffered from record-breaking flooding. Some basements, like the Black Earth Children Museum’s, had around ten feet of flood water and needed emergency assistance in dealing with the crisis. Without enough personnel in the area, SERVPRO immediately called in the storm team, an emergency protocol whereby SERVPRO employees travel, sometimes from out of state, to decimated areas to aid in disaster relief. These teams work tirelessly to help people get back into their homes and businesses as quickly as possible. We are proud to be one of the many branches that went out to clean up the wreckage left behind by the flooding in Wisconsin.

When we got to the Black Earth Children’s Museum it was in really bad shape. Water was still in the building, ruining the carpet and endangering the walls and threatening the integrity of the building. Prolonged exposure to water can trigger mold growth, which can be deadly if not dealt with immediately. This is why we pulled up the carpets, replaced saturated drywall, and used machines to air out the facility so that it was completely dry and free from the dangers of mold.

By the time we left, the Children’s Museum was back to how it had been before the flooding, just as our motto states, like it never even happened.
